Are your teeth stained or discolored? For patients who wish for a brighter, whiter smile, Dr. James E. Gaff may recommend teeth whitening in Jacksonville, Florida. Teeth whitening is ideal for patients with yellowed teeth and no restorations like dental fillings and dental crowns. This is because other shades of teeth staining will not bleach well or at all and restorations will not be affected by the bleaching product. They would stand out against newly whitened teeth. Our office offers both in-office and at-home bleaching.
With in-office whitening, our dentist will apply the whitening solution directly to your teeth. A laser, special light, or heat will be used to enhance the bleaching results. After just one treatment, which will take only 30 to 60 minutes, you will see results. However, most patients need several treatments to reach the whitening results they desire.
Some patients choose to bleach their teeth in the comfort of their home. With at-home bleaching, our dentist will supply you with a custom-made bleaching tray and a gel whitening solution. Slip the tray with the solution over your teeth and wear as prescribed by our dentist. Most patients wear the tray for several hours a day or at night.
